Tuesday Ratings | AUSTRALIAN NINJA WARRIOR sneaks a win as Seven dominates the night


How did Tuesday get to be such a massive suck?

Home & Away (650,000) starts the night solid for Seven, with Big Brother Australia (568,000) landing second in the slot–JUST. While MOVIE: Deadpool 2 (290,000) does get a second run it holds the audience much later into the evening, helping deliver the overall win.
Seven first in both primary (20.8%) and network (28.9%) rankings.

A Current Affair (733,000) stays reasonably big for Nine, and Australian Ninja Warrior (588,000) takes the slot win though slips even further from it’s premiere on Sunday. The Weakest Link (349,000) climbs a little more, however deep in the mid-300’s is not a thing, and then a double repeat Kath & Kim (139,000 average) absolutely does nothing to maintain a later night audience…effectively causing Nine to fall at the final ratings hurdle for the night.
Nine second in both primary (19.7%) and network (27.1%) rankings.

7:30 (543,000) slips from Monday (no Barnaby), and with Anh’s Brush With Fame (523,000) comes in a close fourth in the slot. Finding The Archibald (401,000) does reasonable numbers, probably winning the 8:30pm slot but who can really tell. What Are We Feeding Our Kids? (182,000) and China Tonight (85,000) round out Aunty’s night.
ABC third in primary (11.9%) and fourth in network (16.1%) rankings.

The Project (258,000 6:30pm; 416,000 7pm) still there for 10, sliding into the week, as MasterChef Australia (561,000) slips back into third in the slot and the mid-500’s again. The season finale of How To Stay Married (296,000) dives under 300k and doesn’t bolster confidence. A double repeat of NCIS (202,000; 164,000) keeps a small audience.
10 fourth in primary (11.4%) and third in network (18.8%) rankings.

SBS’s night start large with a new episode of Who Do You Think You Are? Australia (344,000), and is followed by their Tuesday night current affairs run of Insight (229,000), Dateline (203,000), and The Feed (109,000).
SBS fifth in both primary (6.5%) and network (9.1%) rankings.

16-39: Big Brother (146,000) wins, leading Seven News 6pm, Nine News 6:30pm, MasterChef Australia and Nine News 6pm.

18-49: Seven News 6pm (253,000) triumphs over Big Brother, Nine News 6pm/6:30pm, and Seven News 6:30pm.

25-54: Seven News 6pm (312,000) fronts the pack, ahead of Seven News 6:30pm, Nine News 6pm, Big Brother, and Nine News 6:30pm.

The third repeat episode of NCIS (164,000) wins for 10 Bold, just ahead of the evening repeat of Bluey on ABC Kids/TV Plus.

Sunrise (282,000)
The Today Show (210,000)
ABC Breakfast (177,000 (120,000 ABC; 57,000 ABC News))
